Dog bladder infections or incontinence can cause a strong urge to urinate and is a primary cause of canine urinary incontinence. Dogs with an infected bladder tend to empty the bladder partially each time that they urinate. This occurs due to a difficulty in emptying the entire urinary bladder in one go and makes the urine extremely smelly. The urine may sometimes contain blood due to severe infections caused by calculi, cancer, or a tumor.
Use as directed by your veterinarian.
Tablets: The usual dose for dogs is 0.4-0.8mg/pound every 12 hours.
